KENNETT, Mo. (AP) — A trial date of Jan. 15 is set for a Tennessee man accused in a southeast Missouri dogfighting case. The suspect is 29-year-old Curtis Pickering of South Fulton, who is charged with three counts of felony dogfighting. He is one of three men arrested during the 2007 raid at a farm near Dudley. Also arrested were the farm owner, Jamie Sifford, and Jessey Don Short of Cape Girardeau. Short goes to trial in March. Sifford was sentenced in July to three years in prison on the dogfighting charges and six years for a probation violation. The charges against Pickering were dropped in June but refiled in July.
